Sadiq Khan speechLloyds of London
We used the existing infrastructure within the Lloyds broadcast studio and the trading floor to transmit the signal directly to BT tower using their fiber optics line, controlled by a third-party supplier. We then provided the other TV networks with the downlink details to source the video feed on their end and show it on the 10:00 pm news. On the other end, the feed was sent directly to the Lloyds branded webpage for the city Dinner event. This page was built and tailored to Lloyds specific requirements and included new features that are now offered to new and existing clients.
The Lloyds City dinner was successfully broadcasted to all networks that required the video feed and to the Lloyds internal webpage. The client was extremely happy and has invited wtv. to film and broadcast once again and has formally invited us to provide a full RFI for all video communications and requirements inside Lloyds of London and their offices in other countries.
